Volunteer Recruitment Open Day - Sunday 21 January 2018 - 11am to 3pm. We have some great volunteering opportunities, from helping our visitors enjoy the wealth of Coughton's past to working in the garden, there's plenty to get involved in at Coughton Court.

Inspire others with your interests

Come along on Sunday 21 January 2018 for a new opportunity to find out about volunteering with National Trust.  We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities available both indoors and outdoors.  Meet the team and have a cup of tea and slice of cake before you enjoy a tour of the house or drop in to observe the house team demonstrating ‘conservation in action’.

House tours will take place throughout the open day.

Lizzie, one of our room volunteers, tells us her role is great for fuelling her interest in Tudor History. She started by visiting Coughton Court, fell in love with the place and  then joined us as a volunteer.

As a bonus she also meets lots of nice people, visitors, volunteers and staff who are all appreciative of her time and the information she shares.


Giving something back

Could you be a winner?
Rosemarie loves to interact with visitors on a personal level by selling raffle tickets. She feels she is helping in a direct way as the money you give directly benefits Coughton Court. 
She says “A little bit of the stained glass window is because of my efforts”. 

Learning something new
